Highway status as of 3 p.m.
Sunday night, Hwy 58 had many downed trees, some of which were high enough for vehicles (not trucks) to drive under...before they closed the highway. Photo: Facebook/Esther Doty

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - I-5 traffic northbound is moving again at the MP 172 back-up, south of Cottage Grove. ODOT and utility crews are working to remove downed line across the southbound lanes. No ETO but it should be soon.

U.S. 101 is closed at MP 343, 12 miles north of Brookings due to sunken grade. No ETO. No detour.

Lowering snow levels are expected to lower tonight to the Rogue Valley floor. Drivers should either stay home or plan on winter driving conditions tonight into tomorrow morning.

Power is still out in much of Oakridge/Roseburg/Douglas County area.

So -- as of 3 p.m., the following closures are in effect:

  • Travel in Douglas County in the I-5 corridor between Glendale and Cottage Grove (MP 80-174) is discouraged. But traffic is moving northbound. Crews working on SB I-5 at MP 174
  • U.S. 101 is closed at MP 343, 12 miles north of Brookings due to sunken grade- no detour.
  • Oregon 42S between Coquille and Bandon open to single lane after a landslide (MP 9)
  • Oregon 138 West between Sutherlin and Elkton (MP 11-24)
  • Oregon 38 west of Elkton between MP 29-37
